The Mayor of NASCAR

Jeff Burton earned that nickname for his insightful perspectives on issues affecting the well-being and safety of the sport.

But it was his on-track performance that fueled his 22-year Cup Series career.

The 1994 Cup Series Rookie of the Year spent the first half of his career at Roush Fenway Racing, where he experienced his most success. His first Cup win came at Texas Motor Speedway in 1997, the track’s first race. Over the next five years, Burton would win 17 times and finish in the top five in the standings four times.

In 1999, he won a career high six races, including two of the sport’s crown jewel events – the Coca Cola 600 and Southern 500.

Burton finished his career with 21 Cup wins and 27 Xfinity Series wins, one of 10 drivers to have at least 20 wins in each series.

Since 2015, Burton has served as an analyst for NBC Sports’ NASCAR Cup Series and Xfinity Series coverage.
